Appeals Board ^ Grants, Refuses Appeals in Area The Zoning Beard of Appeals met last night to consider three appeals. A crowd of 35 to 40 persons was on hand to hear and participate in the proceedings as the board granted one request, refused one ' and continued the third for another hearing. Twelve persons spoke for Glen Taylor, who wished to erect a welding shop in southwest Sharpsville. Five neighbors of- the immediate vicinity of the proposed shop spoke against it. The request was refused. Fir- tich Cassell was granted a variance for placement of a house trailer. The board discovered a mistake in the application of George Wooldridge, however. Wooldridge had wanted a variance from a C. A. residence to a general business. It was learned at the hearing that he wished to manufacture, rather than repair, fertilizer tanks, boats and other articles. Manufacturing re quires a variance for an indus trial area.

HELLER United Press International NEW YORK (UPI) — The battle -for leadership of the bad'; ly . battered Republican party \ 1^^' ' was on today with the first' major - salvos in the struggle i fired by former Vice President Richard M. Nixon and Gov. Nelson A-. Rockefeller. The breach between the two men, bitter rivals for the GOP presidential nomination in 1960, was widened Thursday by a transatlantic exchange on their respective roles in the 1964 campaign. In a news conference Thursday Nixon wrote off Rockefeller as a possible, GOP leader "because he "sat out" the presidential race. He accused Rockefeller of being the "principal divider" of the GOP during the campaign and said the New York governor had got his "pound of flesh" out of Goldwater's defeat. Cr.nnot Lead "It's a rule of politics that those who do not participate in the campaign.. .cannot be leaders," Nixon said. "He can't be a leader. He must be one of the soldiers in the unification of the party.. "When you have disagreement with the party," Nixon added, "you can't be a • spoil sport or drag your feet." In Madrid, where he was vacationing with his wife, Rockefeller branded Nixon's charges as a "peevish' post-election utterance (which) has unfortunately become typical of Mr. Nixon.„ It is'neither factual nor conjj structive." Rockefeller said it was time for the GOP to rebuild itself as a vital force in American political, life. "Mr. Nixon's latest maneuver is hardly calculated to advance this effort," Rockefeller said. The governor said it was the nomination of the Goldwater- Miller ticket that divided the Republican party • "so severely that despite the efforts of Republican state organizations like New York, the nation rejected the national ticket by unprecedented pluralities." Rockefeller was bitter about the defeat of "outstanding leaders" like Robert Taft Jr. (of Ohio), Kenneth Keating (of New York) and Charles Percy (of Illinois)," in the Johnson landslide. By RAYMOND LAHR United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) The GOP found itself in a chair- family fight today over the blame for Tuesday's election disaster and. ways to rebuild or remodel the Republican party. • Former Vice President Richard M. Nixon asked for a cooling-off period while he threw crockery at New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller, And while praising Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, he said the defeated presidential nominee should try to lead the party only if the Arizona senator's views represent a consensus of Republican thinking. Rockefeller called Nixon "peevish" and said the Goldwater candidacy had divided the party and carried hundreds of Republicans down to defeat. Speaking more gently, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower said the GOP had been hurt but not wrecked. He said the GOP must rid itself of the "false image" that it was the party "for the rich and privileged." Broad Views Eisenho\ver~said the next Republican presidential candidate "must represent a broad spectrum, of .political thinking" but he suggested no names. Gov. William W .Scranton of Pennsylvania also spoke of the GOP image and said it must be changed to show that it is not an exclusive organization. He thought various groups of par- IjHeaders should meet and discuss what course the party should take. These and other comments came from Republican leaders after Goldwater's statement Wednesday that he had no intention of withdrawing from politics or pulling out of his fight for conservation. In their search for a scapegoat, GOP critics of the Goldwater campaign were asking for the retirement of Goldwater's party chairman. Dean Burch, and John Grenier, executive- director in national headquarters. One well-informed Republican source said the clamor for Burch's scalp was coming from the grass roots, from GOP state legislators and members of Congress in normally safe districts who were buried in He called on Republicans to; the Democratic landslide this return to the principles on which the GOP was founded and upon which the- "Republican party and America achieved greatness." OFFICE CLOSED The Tipton County Treasurer's Office has been closed this week for processing mail containing . fall tax installments. Tax payments became delinquent if mailed later than midnight Monday. . .. D.C. VOTESI— This was the District at long lineup'one V?ashmgton polling place as the Columbia got its first vote • since 1800. week. Names Thrown Out Many names were being advanced for the party chairmanship, including Nixon.- Gov. Henry Bellmon of Oklahoma suggested Nixon, several governors and Ray C. Bliss, Ohio, party chairman who has refused the job many times. Gov. Robert E. Smylie of Idaho nominated Gov. John Anderson of Kansas. Two other Republicans reported under discussion Were Rep. Robert Taft .Jr., who lost a cliff-hanger contest for an Ohio Senate seat, and former Rep. Walter Judd of Minnesota. •: Republican party rules provide no machinery for ousting Burch but he would be in a hopeless position if the GOP National Committee should approve a motion of "no confidence" in him at its next meeting. Sen. Hugh Scott, R-Pa., who was reelected this week in a photo finish, faced a similar move as party chairman in 1949. He won a 54 to 50 vote of confidence but resigned a few months later. ; • Weather Sunny and mild - today. Partly cloudy and not so cool tonight.
